. ♪ lou: good evening. the united states tonight is in the midst of the earliest and strongest clues season in a decade, and one that could turn out to be a emptied of among the deadliest. the centers for disease control reports that 7 percent of all deaths in this country in the last week of 2012 were flu-related. the epidemic rages across the entire country, and the cdc is reporting now that they have classified 41 states as having what they call widespread flu activity. more than 2200 people hospitalized, 18 children, 23 adolescents, sadly have died nationwide. the percentage of people seeing their health care provider for flu-like symptoms has climbed sharply. from just under 3% the almost 6%, doubling in the last four weeks. last year's relatively mild season peaked. experts are calling this year's flu strikingly similar to the severe strain of 2003 and for resulting in more than 40,000 from related deaths. this season is just getting started. according to the cdc, increased selectivity could continue for up to two more months, persisting much as the h1 in one or swine flu pande
and the abilities -- ability to suppress groups that are prepared and would like to target the united states and american allies around the world would be degraded. that is a risk one. the second level of risk is if you could return to a situation in which those kinds of terrorists were able to operate not clandestinely within a state which has weak capacity to suppress them but in a state that is actively collaborating and is prepared to put its facilities at their disposal. before 9/11, al qaeda hijacked a state. they hijacked afghanistan. afghanistan was alive. that is different from its relationship with pakistan or yemen or somalia. where they operate essentially either in an area with no state or in a state that is hostile to them. but isn't capable of suppressing them to the degree we would like. operating within a state that is actively compliant, obviously, considerably expands their capacity to plan and mount large-scale terrorist operations as we found in september 2001. the worst of all situations is the taliban remain linked to al qaeda and they come back and govern the country.
